Al Qaeda in Mali behind Algeria attack

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY SERGE DANIEL - EXCLUSIVE IMAGES A picture taken on July 16, 2012 shows fighters of the Islamist group Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO) sitting in the courtyard of the Islamist police station in Gao. A group of armed youths has arrived in Gao from Burkina Faso, joining hundreds of other young African recruits who have come to sign up with radical Islamists controlling the northern Mali town. The new batch of youths will join others from Senegal and Ivory Coast milling about in the scorching heat in the courtyard of a building the jihadists have made the headquarters of their Islamic-law-enforcing police.
